An unusual, enigmatic, visual treat from Cuba bound to make a splash.

On a hot summer morning four teenagers, all differently disabled, gather in a public swimming pool to train with their coach. During the course of the day very little happens but unspoken feelings, rivalries and power games among the members of the group surface. Shot in glorious CinemaScope, unsentimental to its subjects and laconic in length, this contemplative debut unfolds in hypnotic pace into an immersive experience, painting an intimate snapshot of these five outcasts.
